The cafe shuts at 9 pm, so do drop in early if you're heading there for dinner.

The Farm, OMR

If you and your pet are up for a drive during the weekend, The Farm is where you should go! Literally, a farm that has been converted into a restaurant and cafe, The Farm has a great deal of open space that your pet will enjoy exploring. Given the number of cows, buffaloes, and other animals that live there, he/she might even make new besties! If you let the staff know that you’re bringing a pet in advance, they will even suggest activities to keep your pet occupied.

Drizzle By The Beach

Enjoy a sea view with your four-legged friend at this casual dining bar in ECR. They have indoor as well as outdoor seating along with live music, karaoke, and rooftop seating. They allow pets on the ground floor and the rooftop area. They've got buffet too, so you can totally enjoy a filling meal here. 

ATTE Glocal Cafe

This compact and quirky cafe in Besant Nagar is home to two super-friendly dogs - A husky named Whiskey and a bulldog named Madras. These two will keep you company as you dine and play board games at this cafe! You're welcomed to bring your pets too and let them play with and meet other dogs. Also, their pasta and shakes are cool and affordable! Need we say more? Just take your pets there now!

Tryst Cafe

This bungalow-turned restaurant in Neelankarai offers one of the best settings a resto-cafe can. Talk a walk on the beach between meals or simply enjoy sitting outside where the ambience is super chill. And, of course, this place is also pet-friendly (they are allowed to play in the garden area)! That's right! Take your pal on a beach date and enjoy a yummy meal while you're at it! Their desserts are sinfully decadent. 


This Bessy Restaurant is loved by many, not only because of the delish Chicken Tikka Pasta and Waffle Pops they offer, but also because it's pet-friendly. They have a few tables outside as well as indoor seating. Head there in the evenings for a date with your pupper. 

Twisty Tails

This awesome pet-friendly resto-cafe is probably the most heard one in Chennai. After relocating to Ananda Road at Alwarpet, this restaurant has been offering great food and experience for its guests and their pets! Twisty Tails is the perfect spot to take your pets on a date, as they can play around while you dine on some fine pasta.

Sandy's Chocolate Laboratory

The Teynampet branch of Sandy’s Chocolate Lab has outdoor seating for people who want to bring in their pets. The staff here is friendly and familiar with animals, so rest assured that your pet will feel very welcomed. Sandy’s is open all day, but the seating area can get hot during the afternoons, so we recommend you visit in the evenings when the weather is pleasant.

Chamiers Café

Most of us know Chamiers Café as a gorgeous old-world café that is completely indoors. However, they do have outdoor seating (the garden area) at the back that is pet-friendly. But if you want to shop in the little boutiques that the café houses, you’ll have to leave your dog with a friend. 

Craveyard Cafe

If you are looking to score some good pizza in the company of your furry friend, then Craveyard Cafe at Adyar is the place to head to! This pet-friendly cafe has one of the best Italiano Chicken and Veggie Delight pizzas. And for the coffee lovers, try their Irish Coffee or the cold coffee. You'll love it.

The Bark

The Bark has an awesome, green backyard for your pets to play along with a pool, where they can take a swim or simply laze around in the sunlight. This restaurant also offers great food at pocket-friendly prices. We recommend you try the beef steak or the grilled chicken. They also keep changing their menu every few months, so you can expect to find something new every time you visit.
